Book a Property Valuation




Using open houses to make selling easier for you and helping you achieve the best  possible price.....

​Open House viewings are often reserved for run down, tatty properties which need a lot of work but in todays fast moving, busy market they can be used very effectively to reduce the stress of viewings for the seller and to encourage the best possible sale price for your property.

​If you are currently living in your property you can market the traditional way and have viewings spaced out over a few hours, a few days or a few weeks.  Every time you have a viewing you make an extra special effort to tidy the property, clean the children, polish in all those hard to reach places and are on tender hooks wondering what these potential buyers may think.  Then you may recieve an offer from one of the first people to view but you have more people booked in to look round in the next few days.  Do you accept the offer? Will the other buyers pay you more?  If you wait will the people who have made the offer find another property?  You are left in a difficult and stressful position.

​If you market with Urban & Rural we would discuss if an open house viewing was right for you.  With an open house viewing we agree a day and time (normally on a Saturday) when we will arrange all the viewings with potential buyers around this time.  This way you will only have to make that extra special effort to clean and tidy once and you will have a selection of buyers viewing.  We will still book them a time slot but they are likely to see that there are other people who have viewed/going to view your property and this usually creates a demand for the property which encourages buyers to make their best offers to reduce the chance of them losing the property to another buyer who they saw waiting to view your property when they had finished.

​The main benefits from an Open House viewing includes;


  • All viewings are together, you are not having to clean and tidy or live in a showhome waiting for the next viewing
  • ​Creates a sense of urgency from buyers as they can see for themselves that other people are viewing
  • ​All feedback and offers are collected together and fedback to you
  • Encourages buyers to make a good offer to avoid losing your property
  • Keeps you in control, you have all the offers, all the feedback together and can decide which offer to take
  • ​More chance of achiving the asking price or possibly even more


We believe that Open House viewings can work very well for many different types of propertys.
